Please be aware that my diary is often full for many months ahead so I always advise booking well in advance to avoid disappointment. At the time of writing my next availability for  twilights , half or full day courses is January 2021 onward due to advanced bookings, planned extended programmes of learning and other contracted work.

Alongside my very popular OCN Credit4Learning Level 3 and 4 Understanding and Applying Good Practice with People with Autism, I am available to deliver by arrangement a range of autism related day , half-day and twilight courses ( titles shown below) at a time and place convenient for you. Courses which are starred can also be completed as a Level 3 award (accredited by OCN Credit4Learning):

  • Introduction to autism-an overview of the positives as well as the challenges commonly found and many practical support strategies
  • The autism friendly school
  • Autism in the early years*
  • Autism in girls and women
  • Autism and understanding and increasing flexible responses using structure and visual resources such as schedules and social stories
  • Autism and understanding and supporting sensory needs*
  • Autism and behaviour which may challenge -translation , understanding and successful support that is mutually beneficial*
  • Autism and anxiety
  • Autism and understanding and supporting mental health and well-being*
  • Pathological Demand Avoidance (Extreme Demand Avoidance)
  • Autism and adolescence and puberty
  • Autism and collecting information for EHCP’s (for parents or professionals )
  • Autism and collecting information for the autism diagnostic process (for parents or professionals)

All courses are designed to appeal to a range of learning styles using face to face presentation, interactive activities, discussion, group exercises, case studies, reflection, film footage and examples of resources. All courses draw on the voices and experiences of autistic individuals my personal, professional and family experience.

Costs are dependent on the location of the training (as travel time and accommodation may need to be included ) but start from as little as £250 for a “twilight” session in your setting for as many or as few people as you wish although numbers will influence the style of presentation and interaction . For environmental reasons I no longer provide hard copies of the session notes however I can send them in advance of the session for the commissioning organisation to email out to attendees or print them themselves. Certificated courses incur extra costs dependent upon the course. Petrol costs are additional at £0.45 per mile outside of Teesside where I am based.
